Smokey Cheesy Potato Soup Mix

Product Details
My mate H is due to give birth very soon and I wanted to make a vegan comfort food item for those moments when she fancies something quick and easy to munch on. After all she is going to be pretty busy!  I've also been meaning to try out the recipe for a cheesy potato soup mix in Vegan Food Gifts that Phil gave me for Christmas. Me being me, I gave the recipe a big of a jigger and came up with my own version with what I had to hand and  just to make it extra cheesy with a touch of smokiness.   Here is my spin - 

Smokey Cheesy Potato Soup Mix
Makes enough for about 5 individual servings

150g of powdered mashed potato flakes
(I used 1 whole pack of Bauck Hof Kartoffel Puree)
30g of Free and Easy Dairy Free Cheese Sauce Mix
(available in supermarket Free From sections)
20g nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon vegetable bouillon powder
2 tablespoons dried chives
2 teaspoons mustard powder
1 teaspoon (scant) smoked paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Few grinds of black pepper
Pinch of turmeric (for colour)

Mix this all up in a bowl and then bag or jar it.  To make the soup, follow the instructions on the packet in the photo!  H, let me know how it is!

UPDATE ON THIS - When Phil went to actually make the soup he discovered that it needed half a cup more water.  He also told me that you need to add the dry mix to the wet in a slow steady stream and keep whisking to avoid lumps.  It was really very lovely though!
